London – an amazing motorhome destination

Many people choose motorhome hire for their holiday because they want the drive to and from their destination to be as pleasant and relaxing as the stay itself. If we’re honest, not many people would associate London with pleasant driving or see it as a natural destination for a camping or motorhome holiday. The truth, however, is that getting to and from London by road is a lot easier than you might think, and the capital features several permanent camping sites which are perfect for a motorhome holiday.

Lee Valley is the largest park to be located partly in the capital, stretching across Greater London, Hertfordshire and Essex, and it offers a number of choices for both camping and motorhome holidays. Whilst the 10,000 acre park offers a wealth of things to see and do, the location also makes it a perfect base for those who want to see and experience the sights of London.

Virtually every part of Lee Valley is easy to access via the M25. This makes it a very straightforward and pleasant place to get to when driving to your holiday destination, particularly in the comfort of a hired motorhome. If your intention is to drive to a camp site and remain within walking distance, Lee Valley will definitely not disappoint. For those who love engaging with nature, the world famous gardens, woods and marshes give ample opportunity to explore. If you’re looking for a bit more of an adventurous or active holiday, Lee Valley also offers a celebrated golf course, equestrian centres and a thrilling white water park.

Many will of course be looking to base their motorhome at a site where they can gain easy access to and from the centre of London. If this is what you are looking for in a holiday, then the sites at Lee Valley meet your requirements. Whilst previously there was good rail and bus links between the centre of London and Lee Valley, these are now great ones, thanks to the infrastructure improvements and upgrades made to accommodate the London 2012 Olympic Games.

While motorhome hire is often associated with rural or seaside holidays, it is very possible to hire a motorhome and take a break near the centre of the capital city. For many, a motorhome or camper van stay at Lee Valley gives them the best of both worlds – a stay in a scenic, peaceful and beautiful area with the excitement and thrills of the city only a short journey away.
